Ilala palm is a species of palm tree native to the eastern Afrotropics. This plant has for many centuries, in addition to providing weaving materials, been used for many other needs. The palm fronds are sustainably harvested and traded to the weavers. The weavers pull the palm fronds into strips and dye the strips utilizing seasonal fruits, roots, and barks of specific trees to obtain a variety of colors - a technique that is handed down from old masters to young ones.
